Kona Reef Luxury Resort - Oceanfront Suite D32

75-5888 Alii Drive

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii 96740 USA.

Private, top floor, absolute oceanfront, lovely one bedroom condo at the highly acclaimed Kona Reef Resort!

New appliances:

Air conditioner,

Dish washer,



Elegant, large wall mirrors to bring the beautiful ocean and sunset view into the living room!

Why Kona Reef:

• Conveniently located along the prestigious Alii Drive in the heart of Kona town.

• It’s a 5 minute walk in your flip-flops down a low traffic side street (along the ocean) to the village where you will enjoy shopping, dining, nightlife, and other attractions in historic Kailua Village. Walking is better than being caught in downtown traffic, while searching for an elusive parking spot.

• It’s only a few steps to the romantic Honl's Beach; offering snorkeling on calm days, sandy area for kids and sunning, and a hugely popular surf spot when the waves are up.

• It’s one of the few Resorts to offer a heated, salt-water pool adjacent to the ocean.

• It also has a jet spa, barbecue facility & pavilion, elevators, on property and lots of free parking for guests, in a zone where parking is a valued commodity.

Why Top Floor, Ocean Front is best:

(Kona Reef has elevators)

• Best views of ocean and sunsets from lanai, living area and kitchen

• Best privacy; which is compromised on the first and second floor units

• Best security; leave the lanai door open 24 hours to enjoy ocean breeze and sound

• This Ocean front suite is 23 feet from (7 meters) the shoreline. You can watch the surfers, with occasional sightings of whales and dolphins.

What’s Included:

• Bedding includes a California King and a sofa-bed in the living room, accommodating up to 4 guests.

• Romantic décor.

• Fully equipped kitchen.

• Bath tub, with a shower.

• Soaps, toiletries, and hairdryer.

• Beach gears, beach towels, cooler.

• 48" flat screen LED smart TV in the living room and 40" new flat screen TV in the bedroom for your enjoyment.

• Living room has ceiling fan and air conditioner. Bedroom also has ceiling fan over the California King bed giving a comfortable and soothing breeze while you sleep.

• Washer and dryer in the suite, and all utilities.

• Professional, licensed property manager.

• Professional cleaning crew.

I have lived in Kona for 30 years. I purchased this condo because Kona Reef has the best location in Kona and because top floor, ocean front is the best location in the Kona Reef Resort. I take pride in my condo. I want my guests to:

• enjoy a comfortable, hassle free stay,

• feel they had one of their best ever vacations, and

• feel they received high value, at a fair price.

Kona Reef Suite D32 is managed by a bona fide property management company in Kona and is cleaned by a professional cleaning crew.

If you are looking for a superb location, breathtaking direct oceanfront view, an elegantly decorated suite at reasonable rates with a team of efficient, friendly and helpful staff to see to it that your check-in is seamless and your stay is comfortable and enjoyable, you have come to the right place! Look no further! Book now before your requested dates are filled!

This place is a unique find!

  • 5 of 5

Annie's condo was superb! We had such a nice stay. The privacy and view are unbeatable, easy walk into kona and daily farmers market! Annie was very responsive and available during our entire stay. Ocean roars while you sleep in a very comfortable bed, pool and bbq are great and this condo offers a cooler, beach chairs, snorkle sets and more. We had a lovely time and when we return we will be staying here again!

Christmas in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

Totally enjoyed our stay in this condo. It was clean, comfortable, and within walking distance of everything that we needed. It was also fully stocked, so we spent very little out of pocket replacing necessities. Perfect for a couple's getaway. We had a blast and never contacted the owner or management company because everything was GREAT! I highly recommend this property.

Great ocean front property!

  • 5 of 5

We spent six nights in this ocean front condo and it was just as advertised. The condo is directly on the water, and we spent each afternoon / evening watching the sunset from our balcony. Also enjoyed watching whales offshore directly from the balcony. Overall was a great rental property for the price. We enjoyed the close proximity to town (roughly a 10 minute walk to the various bars and restaurants), and the ocean front location of the complex. We did not use the pool or other condo facilities, but parking was very convenient, and used the complex lounge chairs located directly on the water. Although it is a bit dated, the condo is tastefully decorated, and fully stocked with everything you need for a vacation on the beach. Will definitely stay here again for a return visit.

Breathtaking oceanfront views/sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

Great romantic getaway! The unit was clean as was the whole complex. This condo is a very short stroll into town and the farmers market, and close to the water as you could get! Even enjoyed watching yellow tangs swimming in the waves from the lanai.

Absolutely Five Star!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this unit at Kona Reef! We almost didn't book when we saw a strange 2-star review but as the other reviews are all 5 star and singing its praises, we gave it a shot thinking the one low rating could just be a flute or error. It turned out we were correct. This unit has well exceeded our expectations. We are so glad we booked this unit!!

As noted by others, being top floor ocean front, this unit has the best privacy and views at Kona Reef. The wall mirroring doubles that view. Absolutely gorgeous! The unit was in great shape, with all the kitchen ware and appliances we could want.

The complex is very nice, with pool and spa, and has a perfect location to walk downtown and enjoy Kona nightlife.

We highly recommend this unit and hope it is available to us again when we return to Kona!

Lovely, private and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Condo is just as described and feels even "lighter" than in the photos. The king bed is very comfortable. You can hear the ocean everywhere in the condo if you just close the lanai screen door. You will hardly need the A/C, at least not in March. Didn't hear any neighbors and there is complete privacy in the lanai. Perfect for a couple. We have a 7 year old and he slept on the sofa bed, which we don't believe could accommode more than one (small) person comfortably. It may be approaching the end of its better days. Overall, a great value. Good vibes in this place, for sure. The owner, Annie, was fantastic to deal with as was the management company. They stay in touch during your stay. We are very glad we decided against a hotel and after many, many hours of searching listings, decided to stay here. Thank you Annie!
